  • If you want to avoid paying big bucks this is perfect

    If you want to avoid paying big bucks this is perfect. Movie Scene is a Movie Trailor within a shed. The mattress was as good as a 4* Hotel / Shower v satisfactory. Tea + Coffee + milk provided. Microwave only. We had Dinner @ The Hotel > great service & Steaks v good. Very pricey for pub food at $33+ for mains and wine $15 p gl. Very nice dining room.

    Warm, clean, comfortable, accommodation that's really handy to the town centre, historic wharf and church - just a short walk away. Lovely views of the surrounding mountains. Small, but had everything we needed.
